Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation In Parmelia, WA
Think of your nervous system as the electricity circuit of your house. Just like the electrical wires in your house turn on lights, our nerves transmit electrical impulses from our central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) to our muscles (and other structures) to switch them on and off. Infact, our nervous system goes one step further and will send information from our body back to our spinal cord and brain. This is how we feel sensations such as hot and cold, sharp and light touch, dull and sharp pain.
By using NMES we can safely and comfortably provide temporary pain relief, maintain or increase joint range of motion, avoid or slow muscles wasting away due to injury, restrengthen muscles and increase local circulation. NMES is a great addition to treatment to help ‘wake up’ a muscle that isn’t doing its job, speed up rehabilitation and return to sport, or to maintain muscle strength when pain levels restrict your ability to perform your usual exercise.
